You & the Blue

A Newsletter for Alumni and Friends of Broward College



Nancy O'Donnell-WilsonI want to wish all of our readers a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

After you’ve finshed your holiday meal – and the dishes – consider taking advantage of a great opportunity to support the gift of education through #BrowardGives on #GivingTuesday. As we all know, our students need us now more than ever. Your support will address students’ increasing financial obligations, allowing them to continue on their educational journey while providing the tools they need to thrive well into the future.

You can double the impact of your support thanks to three generous donors who are challenging the Broward College community to raise $10,000 for each of the following giving priorities for #GivingTuesday.

  • American Dream Scholarship Challenge: Sponsored by the F. Louis & May Jean Wolff Foundation
  • Broward UP™ Challenge: Sponsored by Broward College Foundation Vice Chair Dr. Monica McGrath
  • Empowerment Fund Challenge: Sponsored by GEICO

When you direct your gift to one (or more) of these three critical areas of that help support student success, you will help us qualify for $30,000 in additional funding. We ask you to choose what inspires you the most … and know you will make a real difference for Broward College students.
